This is why we are firm believers in treating ourselves from time to time, whether that’s a relaxing day at the spa or the purchase of one of our designer bags. Although you really don’t need an excuse to treat yourself right, we’ve conjured up a list of five reasons why every woman deserves a onesixone bag.

    Let’s get into this idea of bags as an investment. First of all, our bags are made from such high quality materials that they can easily survive decades. You could very well leave your bag as an heirloom to your daughters and granddaughters. It is a piece of art that can be worn and enjoyed to its maximum, and admired for years to come.
  • Outfit upgrade
    A onesixone bag makes every outfit fabulous. You could wear your most casual outfit and our Endless Hobo or Gaia Large would still look amazing with it. It’s an instant outfit upgrade!
  • Best friends forever
    A handbag is a woman’s best companion, in good and bad times. A bag will never judge you for eating one too many macarons or speaking your mind in the moment. It will always be there by your side, through thick and thin.
  • Love at first sight
    A gorgeous shape, that perfect hardware and the smell of the beautifully handcrafted leather; the feeling that you get when spotting our bag for the first time. That’s love at first sight. We wouldn’t want you to miss out on the sensation.
  •  Who runs the world? You!
    You’re an incredible woman who works hard and does deserve the very best. A onesixone bag is a purchase you will never regret.

Kelly Beeman: Fashion illustrator for Onesixone

Nov 7, 2018 | by Onesixone Bags

No Comments

Fashion artist and illustrator Kelly Beeman is the third artist to collaborate with luxury handbag brand Onesixone. She has also worked with Elie Saab, Loewe and J.W. Anderson

Who she is

Kelly Beeman is a self-taught fashion illustrator based in New York.

She has worked with a number of renowned brands including Elie Saab, Tory Burch, Loewe and J.W. Anderson.

Her work has been published in Vogue China, Vogue Korea, Marie Claire Italy, InStyle, Interview Magazine and Numero Tokyo.

Though she considers herself shy, Kelly remains active on social media, where she shares her work, inspiration and even her studio; a window into her world where one can appreciate and come to understand each brushstroke.

Works and inspiration

Her work features black and white contours that paint a portrait of a vibrant world composed by garments and items in daily life. There is a focus on figures; principally women with angular faces and intense gazes.

Beeman is deeply interested in the relationship between fashion and culture, and is inspired by fashion as an aspect that is always present in daily life. By “dressing” the characters in her paintings, she uses fashion as a tool to create personalities, stories and context. She explores the meaning of trends and personal appearance in modern culture.

Her connection and prominence in the fashion world is essential, which is why her personalized collection for Onesixone was a natural collaboration.

 

Bags Beyond Kelly Beeman

Beeman’s work for Onesixone features unique designs created specifically for the bags. In her own words, “In my creation for Onesixone, I was inspired by the idea of connection, approach and human conflict in a series of works in which fragments of faces, bodies and nature form an abstract representation of unity”.

Though Kelly Beeman currently resides in New York, during her collaboration with the leather handbag brand the artist enjoyed intense days of work and inspiration in Ubrique alongside creative director Adrian Salvador; to create what is now available as Bags Beyond Kelly Beeman.

In addition to the brand’s iconic Gaia bag, her collection contains a new and entirely different model. The Gea bag enjoys its own harmony and meaning.
For this collection, illustrator Kelly Beeman has represented her work in a completely new technique for the brand: embroidery. It is a technique that has a powerful metaphoric meaning; to be alive is to be interlaced with other living beings.

In the Gaia Small model we discover two evening bags, one in blue with black embroidery, and the other in white with monochromatic embroidery and metallic handles. It is exquisiteness refined in a bag; a work of art engraved in leather.

We also find the models Girls and Chairs and Youth, characterized by a color and a powerful feminine spirit.

The largest version of the Gaia is has three different designs. The Nature and Face models stand out with a range of blue tones and the presence of women and traces of nature that characterize Kelly Beeman’s work.

The spectacular Bodies Nude’s motive is in line with the values that make Onesixone a brand that promote the empowerment of today’s woman.
Finally, there is the new Gea model, which follows the parameters set by the golden ratio with a geometric shape. Its design culminates with an additional gold chain and leather inner lining.

Anna Talens work of art and inspiration

The Artist

Anna Talens is an artist born in Valencia, Spain, although nowadays she lives in Berlin. It is in this city where she has developed great part of her artistic career, and where she has found inspiration for many or her works.

 

This artist studied in “Universidad Politécnica de Valencia”, where she was reckoned as Summa Cum Laude in 2011, and later on she received the Price of Best Thesis of the Year.

She has a broad academic background, as she has enjoyed different abroad experience as student, and she has worked as professor and also as researcher in many European universities.

Anna Talens Work 

Anna Talens based her creation process on two principles: the use of hand-made repetitive process, and the reuse of objects that already exist. What is known as object trouvé.

 

The results of her work are unique pieces that connect the viewer with something known and something unknown, getting the ordinary to be extraordinary. It is about a transformation process of the existing materials of the tangible world, as she described.

In her work, the artist uses artistic resources like the repetition, arbitrariness and the accumulation, by cultivating a perverted minimalist by the presence of the colour and texture of the material.

 

 

Anna Talens artista

Anna Talens always try to look for the beauty of the imperfection on objects, reflected of the manual processes and the shape of the elements of the natural world.

All this inspiration can be reflected in her multidisciplinary works that covers from installations, to sculptures, photography and canvas. A walk around this exposition is amazingly able to let you fascinated and dreamy in front of the work of art. It shows that the reuse of objects can get something ordinary into something extraordinary

 

BAGS BEYOND ANNA TALENS

Anna Talens has been the second artist, after Vicky Uslé, in collaborating with the luxury handbag brand ONESIXONE. On her work on the handbags, together with the creative director of the brand, Adrian Salvador, the artist has been loyal to her personality and artistic entity and has known how to illustrate what has been previously exposed.

 

Behind this collection, “echoes from my former creations can be heard: gold craft based on the Japanese technique Kintsugi; handmade metallic crocheting, endless pin fields which invite you to touch… in short, the recreation of a dreamlike world that speaks about life and the common mysteries to any human being existence.” It concludes Anna Talens.

 

From this collaboration emerged the handbags from the Endless family: Hobo Endless and Endless Clutch, as well as the iconic Gaia inspired by the artist.

The Hobo Endless is a breaking and different handbag from the original Gaia that represents the brand, although it follows the Aurea Proportion that characterised ONESIXONE. The shape of the handbag transmits sophistication as well simplicity

The Endless Clutch is also based on textures that have inspired the expositions of the artist.  The verticality of this elegant model, similar to the fall of a drop of water, a vegetable bud or a flower that opens in the same way as the bag, expresses the harmony of the golden design that inspires the brand within an infinite pattern.

Finally, the iconic Gaia inspired by the golden works of the artist. Three different models of the same small handbag based on minerals, as if it were jewels.

 

The inspiration and work of Anna Talens for ONESIXONE allows an extension of her art to a more wearable way, democratizing the art. This is why, it is included on each handbag of this collection, a book of art in which it is explained all the creation process, as well as the joining work the creative director Adrian Salvador, and some reflexions of the artist. On the preface of it, it is included a conversation between the prestigious Enrique Loewe and the architect Izaskun Chinchilla. It is a precious sample that you would find inside of a magically presented box.
